  1. Hi Guys , sorry for just seeing this !

    thank you for concern , I am about 65 miles north of Tulare Lake , yes I play a lot in Tulare but the town is safe , it’s further west of town of tulare in city of Corcoran , Lemoore , Stratford that are very close to water .

    corcoran state prison is right on north banks of lake as is city of Corcoran . 
    last I have heard is that lake has receded a small amount .

    in my area we are benefitting from lot of dam water storage fo irrigation ! Have not had to run pumps yet and don’t think will need to end of season .

    because of raging rivers back in March we did have to cancel our Cali Antique farm equipment show as county was using grounds for emergency services .

    being lake is 25 miles west of city of tulare it’s called Tulare lake because the land is in Tulare County with little of it in Kings County to north and Kern county to south.

    in my life time I saw lake bottom land ( tulare lake) with this much water in 1969 , and now ,although it’s been flooded to some degree in between years couple of times

    What was going on in the stadium?? 
     

    The blue pickup with the electrall in the bed, Isanti is only 25 miles from me, and I had no idea that was in my area?! 

    They had the 100 year progression of Farmall’s staged and each day Max and Lee would explain the decades . 
    also had other pertinent speakers 

    Howard Raymond was largely responsible for getting this display together . Forum member handle “Nebraska Cowman”

  7. Great day at show spent most of time visiting and not enough looking at tractors but really it’s about the Red Power people ! They are the Best ! 
    the two guys with me in picture are forum members I’ll  let you figure one on my left , hint ! has something todo with spark plugs ! They one on right is QC Canada man both are from Canada !
    The Farmall C with dry bean cutter is phenomenal would not think it could pull four row cutter , I had one on a 400 Farmall and it was all the 400 could handle till the 806 came out and we put hydraulic cutters on it then flew through field .

    I shredded many acres of cotton with a shredder like this 400 Farmall 4th gear wide open two rows at a time .
    Carol and I met forum member “Little feller”

    took a picture of this Red ih hauler with fuel truck on trailer because the paint job on it imho represented many many hours of block sanding flaw less body work 

    the Blue 57 had a Cummins in it and was phenomenal workman’s ship in my opinion 

    our Group picture at Pete 1468 booth was a success so many guys showed up and I met few more members 

    I was privileged to have a few minutes with Max Armstrong , what a delightful man !

    the 806 was early Gasser with a four row cultivator don’t see that combo very often 

    just a little flavor of show through my eyes today

    A 100 years ago I found a 706 gas that had the wrong gasket between the oil filter and block.

    This engine had the newer aluminum oil filter housing on it but, we think the factory, put the old style cast iron oil filter housing gasket in it. This caused low oil pressure by partially covering the pressure port from the pump. It also caused the cam and oil pump to eat itself. The restriction was before the oil pressure relief valve so the pump was making pressure and had no where to go. 

    Scoring pistons can be a lack of oil. Most gasket kits have both gaskets in it. If the wrong one was installed, this could be your issue. Very easy to check. 

    Hope to BS with you in Grand Island.

     

    Thank you ! Nice to know this !

    See you there !

  12. Carol and I will be fying in to Grand Island on the 14th ! Flying out the19th.

  13. Hi Guys ,

    Been a while since. I have checked in !

      I hate that fact but life gets in the way.

    Carol and I are planning on attending  RPRU will be flying in instead of Motor home because of time factor, Grandson getting married 24 June out of town and of course Grandma and Pa need to be there!

    Still loving my IH tractors did major repair on the Goldie and have motor off of 806 L.P. to send back to machine shop third time. Several car shows with the REDKID and HERBIE.

    Wondering who all is going looking forward to meeting you and wondering if we will still be meeting at Mike links for get together and picture.

    We are flying out next Wednesday14th returning 19th.

    Looking forward to having a great time

  14.  Back prior to 2006 any SMTA running would bring 10,000.00 . I have watched prices on SMTA drop to current levels.

       Mine was a fence row tractor with shinny paint on it when i bought it but it was what I wanted had all the bells and whistles I was looking for. IE LP, single front , hydraulic tree hydraulics 

      I had to restore it three time to get it to my minds eye. It was wore out front to rear !

        I love it and have spent a fortune on it but the pleasure it gives me to look at it ,I cannot put a price on . It’s basically a new tractor now .

         Have no idea how much it would take to buy it from me. I know no one would be crazy enough !

    Btw my BIL driving top pic 

    me on bottom pic
